Zoë transplanted from Phoenix, Arizona, in mid-2019 by way of Los Angeles, Manhattan and the Washington, D.C. acting markets. Her love of the Southwest is only one reason she and her Husband of almost 30 years decided to make New Mexico their new home. Zoë Yeoman made her professional acting debut at the age of 16, at Kings Hall in Heidelberg, Germany, in a production of Godspell. Since then she’s worked in most of the major markets across the United States. She was raised by an Air Force enlisted man and her Mother was a civil servant, eventually retiring from the Pentagon as Chief of Logistics at Joint Base Andrews. Her family always took advantage of travel, consequently she’s lived or traveled through most of the United States and has lived in Frankfurt, Germany and on the island of Okinawa.
A working actor and a member of Actor’s Equity and SAG/AFTRA and, at times Producer and Director, some of Zoë’s favorite theater roles include Lisa Kron in Well, Ruth Steiner in Donald Margulies’ Collected Stories, Dr. Vivian Bearing in Wit, and as Haley Walker in Theresa Rebeck’s Bad Dates. She originated the role of Margaret in James Riordon’s award winning play, Apollo Redux, and played dual roles in the Washington, D.C. premiere of Emma’s Child, for Horizons’ Theater. On film, Zoë most has appeared in short and feature films, The Five Cent Curve and in All About You, directed by auteur Christine Swanson. Starring roles include Vanessa in Carrots and Onions and K.K.Kettering in the short film, Creole Lady Angelle. She recently was cast in festival favorite, Raising Buchanan, written and directed by Bruce Dellis, M.E.C.C.A.-The Film, The Tiny House Movie and others that are in pre- or post production, due out in 2021 or 2022. On Television, you’ve seen Zoë in episodes of Law & Order: Special Victims’ Unit, David E. Kelley’s The Practice; Strong Medicine, The Drew Carey Show and the ABC Sitcom, Rodney. She earned her Equity card with “the best understudy performance in 20 years” at the Kennedy Center/Eisenhower Theatre in Washington, D.C., (during a run of The Magic Fire, produced in conjunction with and by the Oregon Shakespeare Festival and directed by Libby Appel). Producing and Directing credits include One-Act plays, short films and theatrical productions for the Arizona Women’s Theatre Company’s, Pandora Festival.
Zoë is well known for her character roles and is considered not only versatile in her looks, but her demeanor. Equally gifted in comedy and drama, Zoë has played cancer victims (actually shaving her head for the role), social doyennes, uptight professors, lawyers, doctors, leading ladies and an evil pharmaceutical company owner. One past Director said of her skills, “Read her, you’ll believe”.
Zoë is the athletic type, enjoying every major sport; especially Baseball. She is an avid Golfer and has played courses from the Bay Area to Scottsdale, Arizona to Williamsburg, Virginia. Having learned to Ski in the Austrian Alps, she has skied the Alps of Europe and the Eastern and Western slopes of the United States. She also rides horses and recently gave up her beautiful APHA 16.2h gelding, Zoe’s Situation Comedy (AKA Rolling!) so that he could have the life he deserves by trailering, and going on stream rides through Flagstaff, AZ with his new family. Her one remaining 15-year old Standard Poodle, Porter and her 14-year old Shih Tzu, Barley Wine are her beer-inspired Pups. A true gear head, she drives a 1977 Lincoln Continental Mark V among other things and is very close to getting her ’67 Honda CB-450 back on the road. An avid collector of antique furniture and 20th Century Modern Art, Zoë has visited most of the major museums around the U.S. and the cathedrals of Europe, adding a few more during a recent trip to Greece, Italy and Turkey.
Ms. Yeoman was on the Board of Directors of the Friars’ Club of California and is a past president of the Arizona Women’s Theatre Company. She’s a member of the Santa Fe chapter of The Hamptons Table and New Mexico Women in Film. She’s grateful for the warm welcome fellow New Mexicans and artistic creators in the State have offered she and her Husband, Daniel and is excited to see and learn more about her new home.
